The Dalston Practice vaccination centre is based at Wigton Community Hospital. When

The NHS is prioritising vaccinating those that experts have agreed will benefit from having it the most, as they are most at risk.

From Monday the 15th February, people in cohorts 5 and 6 are being invited by the NHS to have their vaccine. These are:

* Cohort 5 – all patients 65 years

*Cohort 6- all Patients aged 16-64 years with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality.

People in cohort 5 may also receive a letter from the national booking service, providing them an alternative option which invites them to book at a Large Vaccination Centre. However as you would need to travel further for your vaccination it may be convenient for you to wait for the practice to contact you and invite you to our local vaccination centre.

Please do not contact the practice about you vaccine we will contact you when its your turn.
